    Hi team,

    As it's known to most telerik users, we can use Blend to extract the style for each Rad control. And i notice it seems to be with Office black theme. What if i want to extract the style with other themes such as Windows 8? i don't want to go through all files under Themes.Implicit\WPF40\Windows8\Themes. And one of painpoint of using the latter way is for a complex control, i need to scan the whole file to get the whole style of it. So any thoughts?

    Hello Yang,

    When using implicit styles, you can extract template relevant for the theme that you use. However you need to merge its resources in the App.xaml first. Please find attached a sample project which you can try in Blend. Just add the needed references of
    • Telerik.Windows.Controls.dll
    • Telerik.Windows.Themes.Windows8.dll
    The already extracted template there is the one that we use in the Windows8 theme.
